Hello Hunters!

Beneath i will post what i think is the correct way to prepare for AQ40. If anything seems off, or if you have a better idea feel free to comment.

Pets: Our pets will assist with soaking. That means we should bring a level 60 turtle because of Shell Shield with loyalty level 6 (Best friend) The rank combined with being level 60 means you have enough points to get full NR + stamina in talents. You need to tame a turtle in Hillsbrad first to get the ability, then you can drop the pet and get a higher level one. The highest Turtle out there is level 54 in Azhara, so i suggest you start taming. The second best option is a Bear, simply because of their HP pool. After our first go at the boss we will notice pretty quickly if we can bring back our normal pets again (Which btw should be a Cat, Wind Serpent when we can tame Son of Hakkar or a Wolf if you have rank 8 bite from LBRS)

Will we see the first ever hunter pet being healed in Cyrus? Time will tell.

As Inev have stated, we need to get 200 NR unbuffed. Everything above that is a bonus, but we should probably don't go over 240. This list is not set in stone, you can obviously change whatever item you want. As long as you are at a minimum of 200 NR and Hit capped (Tranquilizing Shot)

Neck:

Keep the one you have for hit.

Shoulders:

Keep the one you have for hit.

Cloak:

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=22660/gaeas-embrace - https://classic.wowhead.com/item=22683/pattern-gaeas-embrace

Chest:

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=20380/dreamscale-breastplate - https://classic.wowhead.com/item=20382/pattern-dreamscale-breastplate

Or

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=20478/sandstalker-breastplate - https://classic.wowhead.com/item=20511/pattern-sandstalker-breastplate

Or

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=22756/sylvan-vest - https://classic.wowhead.com/item=22774/pattern-sylvan-vest

Wrist:

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=20476/sandstalker-bracers - https://classic.wowhead.com/item=20509/pattern-sandstalker-bracers

Gloves:

Keep T1 for hit.

Waist:

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=17750/chloromesh-girdle - Dropped by Razorlash in Maraudon.

Legs:

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=20702/cenarion-reservists-legguards - From quest

Boots:

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=13530/fangdrip-runners - Dropped by Nerub'enkan in Stratholme.

Or

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=22760/bramblewood-boots - https://classic.wowhead.com/item=22770/pattern-bramblewood-boots

Ring:

Keep both for hit.

Trinket:

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=17744/heart-of-noxxion - Dropped by Noxxion in Maraudon. Get two.

Enchants:

Cloak:
https://classic.wowhead.com/item=20733/formula-enchant-cloak-greater-nature-resistance
Shoulders: https://classic.wowhead.com/item=18172/nature-mantle-of-the-dawn - Requires revered with Argent Dawn.
Head: https://classic.wowhead.com/item=22635/savage-guard - You will need https://classic.wowhead.com/item=18329/arcanum-of-rapidity for this.
Legs: https://classic.wowhead.com/item=22635/savage-guard

This puts you at 200-235 NR, without losing any hit rating at all.




A few things to take into consideration:

- You will need to get https://classic.wowhead.com/item=14023/barov-peasant-caller This is for soaking phase.
- An addon you might want to consider is Itemrack (Don't get TrinketMenu!) With this addon you can queue up a trinket swap (And other items), so as soon as you leave combat (which you do during FD unless your pet is attacking) you will actually change trinkets during boss fights.
- https://classic.wowhead.com/item=16942/dragonstalkers-breastplate has +10 NR.
- https://classic.wowhead.com/item=18715/lokdelar-stave-of-the-ancient-keepers has +10 NR.
- https://classic.wowhead.com/item=17102/cloak-of-the-shrouded-mists has +6 NR.
- Don't forget about https://classic.wowhead.com/item=13052/warmonger if you are in need of hit rating. Might be good if you have NR rings in your bank already. Don't talent into survival for hit rating, you need to be 21/31/0.

Viscidus:


On this boss, because of the frost stages we will need to get frost weapons.

https://classic.wowhead.com/item=13984/darrowspike#comments - Quest reward from https://classic.wowhead.com/quest=5466/the-lich-ras-frostwhisper
https://classic.wowhead.com/item=10761/coldrage-dagger - Dropped by Amnennar the Coldbringer in Razorfen Downs.
Bring https://classic.wowhead.com/item=3829/frost-oil for these weapons.

Cheers

When and if you need dagger skill, the spirits next to the last boss in DM:N wont attack you back. So you can literally afk skill to 300.
